In 1985, New York director Larry Cohen (It’s Alive, Full Moon High) took to the camera to bring us a cult classic called The Stuff, the story of a strange “goo” found coming from the Earth which is packaged up and sold as a delicious desert treat. The only problem is that when the customers of the product eat it they turn into flesh eating zombies.
The story is not dissimilar to another cult favourite of mine, Street Trash (J.

It’s a wonderfully silly plot that works wonderfully with the rest of the film. »

Williams, and Travis Tope, who will be seen in Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children, which is currently in production.
